Sargent Seedoo is a square dance caller and dance instructor from Kentucky who currently resides in Hudson, New York. He came into this work honestly and learned the craft from old-timers in Kentucky/West Virginia and young revivalists from all over the country. He may be naïve, but he thinks social dance will save the world.
